1908 : Fisher Body Company Incorporated

July 22, 2018 all-day

On July 22, 1908, brothers Fred and Charles Fisher incorporated the Fisher Body Company with financing assistance from an uncle. Within a short time, Fred and Charles brought their five younger brothers into the business. In 1919, General Motors bought 60 percent of what was then known as Fisher Body Corporation. It was dissolved into other GM operations in 1984, so GM models ceased having the familiar “Body by Fisher” emblem on their door sill plates.
